Scarlett Gives a Damn

“I don’t have a Facebook or a Twitter account, and I don’t know how I feel about this idea of, “Now, I’m eating dinner, and I want everyone to know that I’m having dinner at this time.” or “I just mailed a letter and dropped off my kids.” That, to me, is a very strange phenomenon. I can’t think of anything I’d rather do less than have to continuously share details of my everyday life. I’m always surprised that certain actors have Twitter accounts. I guess they use it in a way that works for them. But I’d rather that people had less access to my personal life. If I could keep it that way, I’d be a happy lady.”

Scarlett Johansson’s new film, We Bought a Zoo, is based on the true story of Benjamin Mee, a British journalist who moves with his family into a house on a piece of property that contains a private zoo that has fallen into disrepair. Following the untimely death of his wife, Mee decides to focus his energies on refurbishing the zoo and making a new home not only for the animals that live there, but for his grieving family as well.

In the film, directed by Cameron Crowe, the locale is reset in Southern California, with Matt Damon playing the Mee role, and Johansson as the zookeeper who helps him with the project. All told, We Bought a Zoo is a heartwarming movie that brings to light the resilience of the human spirit, the kinship that can exist between people and animals, and numerous other wholly life-affirming ideas. But for those very same reasons, the film stands out in the Johansson oeuvre, which by and large is comprised of more fraught, conflicted material like Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation (2003), or Woody Allen’s Match Point (2005) and Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008), in which the philosophical takeaway is more ambiguous and bad things occasionally beget worse things as the characters struggle bitterly (and often unsuccessfully) to come to terms with parts of their lives that don’t quite square up to their own expectations. So We Bought a Zoo is a different kind of movie for Johansson, and it arrives at what has turned out to be a very different kind of time for her, too.

Photographed by Mario Sorrenti, Scarlett covers the US issue of Vanity Fair Magazine, looking this stunning!! I’ve added scans of the editorial to our gallery, and hope to add the interview ones soon. Meanwhile, here you have a sneak peek from VF! – click on the cover to see scans!

Scarlett Johansson does not seem the least bit ashamed when discussing her recent nude-photo scandal with Vanity Fair contributing editor Peter Biskind. “I know my best angles,” she says with her trademark insouciance. “They were sent to my husband,” now ex Ryan Reynolds. “There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s not like I was shooting a porno.” She adds saucily, “Although there’s nothing wrong with that either.”

Scarlett covers last week’s edition of spanish magazine S Moda. Photographed during her trip to Milan to attend Dolce & Gabbana’s fashion show, Scarl looked so glamorous and sexy! There are some new photos and a new interview, unfortunately for some of you it’s in spanish but I translated some of the most interesting quotes:

“In Hollywood, everyone takes care of their image to the last detail. But in my private life, no. I advocate a healthy lifestyle. I don’t like extremes. When I go to a presentation, a gala, or a premiere, I know I’m going to be photographed on the red carpet. Let’s say it’s not a surprise for me. But it terrifies me that they try to take snapshots of my personal life. In any case, being a sex symbol does not represent any extra pressure for me. I consider myself an independent woman. And when I have to go to an event, I simply choose the dresses in which I feel more comfortable and glamorous. Someone will always criticize me by the look I chose. But you can’t allow these types of comments affect you. And so you can’t stop going out as much as people recognize you and try to stop you when you pass by their side.”

“Young people should claim their right to vote ever since they turn 18. It is a right for which our ancestors have fought and were killed. And the mere fact of despising it for me seems irresponsible and disrespectful. It’s absurd not to participate in society and in political life through the ballot box. It is certainly a matter of ignorance.”

In Dolce & Gabbana’s ad campaign for their new Perfect Finish Creamy Foundation and Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick – both hit stores this month – Scarlett Johansson’s striking beauty is amplified by makeup artist Pat McGrath.  Here, Scarlett talks about her retro-inspired images.

What did you most enjoy about this latest D&G shoot? How was it different from past shoots for the brand’s beauty collection?

It was like making a little mini movie. Stefano and Domenico had this whole unbelievable story behind the shoot – she lives in Sicily and her husband’s left her and she’s now waiting for her lover. It was all so unbelievably glamorous and Fellini-esque, like they’re making a Bertolucci movie or something.  To me that’s fun because it’s a part of playing dress-up.

Did you pick up any application tips or tricks from Pat on set?

Pat does a lot of old school tricks like using the concealer brush around the lips to really highlight the shape of the lip and stuff like that. And she’ll completely finish one eye and then do the other side which, to me, is really interesting because it’s almost like she knows exactly how she wants it to look so she’s able to complete the look on the other side. I don’t know what her theory is on that but it’s brilliant. And I find it does help, when you’re doing eyeliner to totally complete one eye, like, the finishing touch, and then do the other one because then you have a reference, almost.

Do you prefer to play up your eyes, lips or cheekbones? What are you most comfortable applying/doing yourself?

I think it depends on the occasion, but I do think it’s nice to have a pale lip and a smoky eye or perhaps a little flick of eyeliner and a red lip. I like to mix it up depending on what I’m wearing and also what my hair color is!

In a pastel pink lace dress, blonde hair bobbed and crimped, skin pale apart from a flash of ruby red lipstick, Scarlett Johansson bought a touch of old Hollywood glamor to Milan fashion week this year.The “Lost in Translation” star sat front row during Dolce & Gabbana’s spring/summer 2012 womenswear show. She has been the designers’ muse since 2009 when the duo launched their makeup line.In an exclusive interview with CNN, the 26-year-old actress opens up about the pressure she feels to maintain an “otherworldly idea of perfection” in an image-conscious industry, and explains how she divides her public and private persona.

CNN: What has it meant for you being the muse for Dolce & Gabbana?

Scarlett Johansson: Ever since I’ve had the curves enough to fit into their dresses, I’ve been wearing their stuff, and when I was approached to be the face of their makeup line, it felt like a very natural fit.It’s also very exciting for me to collaborate with the designers on the look of the campaign and to create this image of an independent, contemporary woman. The idea of this Golden Age of Hollywood glamor that the boys love, I love it too. I think we have the same mentality … the same sort of aesthetic.

The whole enterprise is falling apart. Egos, tempers, uneasy alliances and bad attitudes are threatening the group, and failure would be catastrophic. Luckily, we’re talking about the actual team of superheroes in the Marvel Studios movie The Avengers, not the cast and crew. In this week’s issue, EW takes a deep dive into the May 4, 2012 movie that will finally unite Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, and Chris Evans’ Captain America — along with Mark Ruffalo’s The Incredible Hulk, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow — on the big screen. We use the word “unite” loosely. “Just because they’re super heroes doesn’t mean they’re super friends,” says Renner.

It was a different story with the cast and crew: If anything, they got along too well. Far from home on the Albuquerque set, they had little to do except hang out together, maybe hit a Motley Cruë concert, or go dancing with writer-director Joss Whedon, who says he knew “every dance club in Albuquerque.” Whedon was actually counting on a little bit of friction, since there’s so much in the actual story. “I was like, well, if they hate each other, I guess we can use that,” he shrugs. “But they don’t.”

When he wasn’t out dancing, Whedon was obsessively rewriting dialogue. On the Iron Man movies, Downey was notorious for pushing for heat-of-the-moment script punch-ups (or as he puts it: “I dominated like a rabid, horny gorilla”). And even as part of an ensemble in Avengers, he still nudged Whedon to go a little farther in some scenes. The day EW was on set, Whedon (the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the acclaimed Astonishing X-Men comic book series) was scribbling out new pages of dialogue right before our eyes. Says the director, “There is a weird element of: they handed me one of the biggest movies of all time, and I’m making it up as I go.”

The Megans and Milas and Blakes may come and go with the usual ebb and flow of the multiplex, but our (somewhat unhealthy) fascination with one woman endures.

“At 26, she remains fresh-faced, curious, trying on new moods and outlets of expression as easily as she changes her hair color. This is what we love about Scarlett: that she’s game, that she’s good, that she can try on all these guises without seeming to try too hard. And all the while still seem genuinely like the observant, inquisitive (and very cute) girl in transition we fell for in Lost in Translation.”
